Support Our Future Leaders

The Media Line is known for producing truthful, unbiased journalism and we are teaching future journalists to do the same. Through our signature Press and Policy Student Program, The Media Line provides an innovative opportunity for students to globalize their educational experience by connecting to an active news bureau in the Middle East, studying journalism and public policy under the mentorship of veteran journalists while earning academic credit.

These students will reshape how the world sees and understands the Middle East and, in turn, how the Middle East impacts our world. Your contribution will provide the next generation with the skills they need to uphold the highest standards of journalism and, in turn, educate our global society with integrity and respect.

Thank you!

Consultations Resume over Next Lebanese PM

Lebanese President Michel Aoun continued consultations with politicians on Thursday over a nominee to form the next government and lead it. Former prime minister Saad al-Hariri resigned in late October due to widespread anti-government protests, and efforts to establish a new governing coalition have been held up, primarily over his refusal to reconsider. While Hariri is unpopular in the streets yet he is seen as the preferred candidate by some of the country’s powerful outside backers, such as Saudi Arabia. Lebanon is beset by crippling foreign debt, rampant cronyism and a long history of divisive sectarianism, all of which has led to what is probably the leading slogan of the two-month-long protests: “All of them means all of them,” a reference to demonstrators’ demands for a clean slate in all respects.
